About the Exhibit

Paintings, drawings and other 2D work will be accepted for this exhibit and artists are limited to two works each. Photographs are not included in this show but later in the year, photographers can enter the annual Photography Open to be held in December and January at the Sweetwater County Library.

The deadline as stated above allows staff time to hang the shows before the opening days of the exhibit. Participants are asked to drop off their entries at the Sweetwater County Library.

This exhibit is open to Sweetwater County artists who are out of high school.
The Exhibits Committee of the Library System developed the guidelines for the exhibits displayed in the county libraries, which is included on the application forms.

This exhibit will hang in public libraries and should conform to community standards in regard to subject matter.

Art will be original (no copy work) and not previously exhibited in the Library System. The artwork must be framed, ready to hang with wire and identified on the back with labels which are included in the application. Saw-tooth hangers will be accepted for smaller pieces.
